I also just found out the other day that you can use the debit card online now! (you used to only be able to pay that way with the credit card version.) I put my number in to pay for a gift I was ordering, and it was like magic. FREE SHIPPING! Without having to spend their usual $50 minimum! So yes, that's a 5% discount online PLUS free shipping. Plus you can tack on other coupon codes if you have them (AAA does 10% off).
Just in case you missed it, here is the rundown of all the amazing benefits of the RedCard:
- 5% off EVERY time you shop at Target, in-store or online
- Free shipping online, no minimum purchase
- Get the debit card so it's linked to your checking account and you don't ever have to pay a bill
- It's FREE and really easy to sign up right in the store
- Sometimes they send you coupon books in the mail :)
Another way I save is by printing their coupons from their online site and getting their mobile coupons texted to me. To print from online I go to Target.com and scroll to the bottom and click Coupons under Ways to Save. From there I select the ones I want and then print. I mostly do this for things like toiletries, because those will be $1 off a beauty product, which makes a bigger difference than 50 cents off 4 boxes of frozen vegetables. They also sometimes have coupons for clothes. YES CLOTHES! $2-3 off or 20% off a women's clothing item are discounts I typically see. Randomly it will be for shoes or accessories. It's pretty awesome. Also, if you download the new Target app on your smart phone, and put in your phone number, it will text you mobile coupons that you can pull up and scan straight from your phone! No printing!
So basically if you don't like Target you should. And if you do, I think I've just convinced you to love it even more. Sorry for the sales pitch but I just had to tell you because these savings are that good! Go check it out!
